“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music” – Albert Einstein
Music is in the air – literally – with music talent shows airing globally on the television, we are blown away by the talent of these budding artists. They may go on to become household names, just as the amazing musicians of the past eras have. What genre of music do you like?
- Create conversation and rapport in the classroom this week by introducing music in general. Our young generation are extremely focused on music and what a great way to get to know your students and interact with them, focusing on a subject they love.
Allow them to introduce their favourite hit song today. Play their music and compare classical with pop and rock genres.
- Open up class discussions with students imagining what they would be thinking all those years ago. How would they get their musical message across?
Combining history and the world today doesn’t have to be boring. Introduce them to our early musicians, from Mozart to the legendary, Elvis and John Lennon.
These historical stories are a solid foundation of proof for teachers and parents to their children that determination, hard work and commitment pay off.

They really capture the students immediately as the historical subject tells their own story.
